I watch Orioles games all the time and see Nick Markakis switched his brand of Bats that he is using now to Xbats from Max Bats.
He is using a Black X bat from when he was using a Blonde Max Bat.

I am really not a fan of the X bats myself but I guess Nick Now likes them.

Geoff - I was hoping his XBat use was temporary. Because of Xbats position on selling bats to the public that are pro-coded, they have in my opinion caused the "real" bats to not be as desirable.

To quote from XBat's webpage - http://www.xbats.com/products.asp?cat=11

Pro Player Bats (http://www.xbats.com/proddetail.asp?prod=TB)
Now get the same X BAT your favorite player swings. Same wood, same Model, same size and color with your pro's name engraved.

I think that even if you get the XBat handed to you direct from the player and then someday want to resell it you still end up with a possible tainted price.

Just my thoughts. Andrew
